Jeff Atterbury grew up in Texas before moving to San Jose with his family in 1985. He has lived the majority of his life in the Bay Area, graduating from Bellarmine College Preparatory before moving on to secure his B.A. from University of California Santa Barbara, and then his J.D. from Santa Clara University School of Law in 2003.
After law school Jeff worked as a deputy district attorney at the Contra Costa County District Attorney’s Office, and later the Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Office. During his time as a prosecutor, Jeff honed his trial aptitude by conducting over 50 jury trials to verdict.
Jeff later transitioned out of government work, and shortly thereafter joined a major insurance company as in-house counsel. He defended numerous insurance companies in a wide variety of personal injury matters. These cases included car collisions, falls, landlord/tenant cases, product liability, mold, and other similar lawsuits. During his time working in the insurance industry, Jeff completed over 1,000 depositions (including doctors, surgeons, biomechanical engineers, and other experts), hundreds of mediations, and 17 jury trials to verdict.
After working in the insurance field for over 6 years, Jeff realized he would rather champion the cause of the injured individual, rather than represent a faceless insurance corporation. Accordingly, Jeff combined his trial skills with his insurance insider information, and joined Habbas & Associates to become a tenacious, motivated advocate for those that have been injured. He truly loves what he does. This is most evident when he communicates enthusiastically with his clients about their cases, or when he grapples with insurance adjusters and attorneys to compel excellent results.
Jeff is married to his lovely wife Shannon and has a super cute toddler, Austin. In his (very limited) spare time, he loves playing with his son, camping, reading books, and enjoying scintillating conversation with his whip-smart wife.
